I have posted same question under Routing and Switching, Just that i need the Apps Networking guys to also comment as well.


We are debating whether to enable link state tracking for servers with teamed NIC to detect upstream uplink failures between switches.

If the switch the server with teamed NIC is directly connected to have multiple uplinks to different distribution switches in port-channel, the question we need answer to "Is link state tracking required"? Personally I don’t think link state tracking is needed in my scenarios with multiple redundant uplinks.

Any comment is welcome.
